Eddie Hearn makes interesting offer to Conor McGregor

Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko Press Conference

Eddie Hearn is renowned for his clients on the boxing scene.

The promoter currently heads Matchroom Boxing and has a number of clients, including the likes of Anthony Joshua, Anthony Crolla and Kell Brook.

Hearn will be watching on ringside as Joshua defends his WBO heavyweight title in Cardiff on March 31, coming up against New Zealand's Joseph Parker.

However, Hearn has his eyes on managing the progress of one of the biggest athletes in the world right now, Conor McGregor.

The 38-year-old promoter, who is the son of former Leyton Orient owner Barry, is keen to see how much he could further expand McGregor's profile.

McGregor made headlines around the world when he swapped the UFC octagon for the boxing ring last August, when he lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr in a one-off bout in Las Vegas.

The 29-year-old Dubliner is yet to return to either UFC or a boxing ring, but Hearn wants to offer his input into McGregor's career and is confident he would be the right man to guide McGregor's comeback.

“(It is) a great job, that I’d be really good at and that’s a lot less hassle, is being a manager or adviser,” Hearn said, speaking to iFL TV.

“I know the mindset of a promoter so I would always get the max for the fighter every time.

“There’s no hassle. You do the deal, collect the money and just turn up and enjoy the night.

“Maybe in MMA I should start representing fighters. If you’re out there and you’re a major UFC star, Conor if you’re watching, I’ll get you the max every time.”

McGregor is currently managed by Iraqi-American Audie Attar.

Manager Attar led the way for McGregor's debut fight with Mayweather Jr last summer but anyone who has seen Hearn at work over the last few years will know he usually gets what he wants in the end.
